East Cobb County Council of PTAs
On behalf of the ECCC PTA board, we look forward to working with our PTA volunteers, students, teachers, administrators and community leaders throughout East Cobb to make every child’s potential a reality.
Our theme this year is “Reach for the Stars. Change the World.” Together we strive to help our children to grow and to learn. A high-quality education is indispensable to our children in an exponentially competitive world and essential to the ongoing strength of our communities. Let us know how we can help support your students and school communities.
Our aim is nothing less than to help our students reach for the stars and change the world.
To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in schools, the community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;
To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children, and;
To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of the Nation.

Standard 2: Communicating effectively—Families and school staff engage in regular, two-way, meaningful communication about student learning.
Standard 3: Supporting student success—Families and school staff continuously collaborate to support students’ learning and healthy development both at home and at school, and have regular opportunities to strengthen their knowledge and skills to do so effectively.
Standard 4: Speaking up for every child—Families are empowered to be advocates for their own and other children, to ensure that students are treated fairly and have access to learning opportunities that will support their success.
Standard 5: Sharing power—Families and school staff are equal partners in decisions that affect children and families and together inform, influence, and create policies, practices, and programs.
Standard 6: Collaborating with community—Families and school staff collaborate with community members to connect students, families, and staff to expanded learning opportunities, community services, and civic participation.
